Charles Younger was born at Long Melford on the 26th December1861 & Married Maria Ford on Christmas Day 1890. Childhood sweet hearts, they grew up as in adjoining cottages at Lineage Wood. Having started his family at Melford working for Melford Hall as a Gamekeeper he moved them across the border to Essex where he remained the rest of his life. Two more children followed both of which lived in Bulmer nearly all their lives Patrick & Hubert the former my Grandfather.

 

Sadly their eldest son Albert died tragically as a child aged 9 in a farm accident at Gt Henny and his head stone can still

be seen casting a lonely picture as you go through the gates to the local Church.

Born & married in December it was fitting he passed away on the 28th December 1940, he just had time to reflect on 50 years of married life.

 

 

Maria Younger (nee Ford) Born one of twins (Elizabeth) on the 1st May 1865 were a well-known family in Melford. Her Father was the game keeper at Lineage Wood during the Royal shoot of the same year. Her husband Charles was to follow his future father in law & indeed was under him at Lineage Wood when they married.

 

She passed away on the 14th August 1948 and laid to rest with her late her husband.

 

Joe Younger was the second eldest child of Patrick & Ivy Younger & grandson to Charles & Maria. He was just 18 when he passed away.


His mother, my Grandmother, still visited his grave although not marked in the 70’s as I recall walking there with her on occasion as a small boy. My Father, his brother, I found out much later on in life carried a photo around with him for much of his life.
